Beyonce has scooped nine nominations for the 2017 Grammy Awards, extending her lead as the most-nominated woman in Grammys history.

The star is up for the main prize, album of the year, for her ambitious visual album, Lemonade, which tackles themes of race and female identity.

Her single Formation is also up for song and record of the year.

In all three categories, she is up against Adele – who previously won the ceremony’s top three prizes in 2012.

Beyonce now has 62 Grammy nominations across her work as a solo artist and as part of Destiny’s Child, making her the fourth most-nominated artist ever. She has won 20 trophies altogether, although she has yet to clinch the album of the year prize, having been beaten to the title by Beck in 2015 – much to the disgust of Kanye West, who stormed the stage in protest.
